All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident: Arthur Schopenhauer -- In questions of science the authority of a thousand is not worth the humble reasoning of a single individual: Galileo Galilei -- Science is a wonderful thing if one does not have to earn one's living at it: Albert Einstein -- When you have eliminated the impossible, what ever remains, however improbable must be the truth: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle -- We all agree that your theory is crazy, but is it crazy enough? Niels Bohr -- Whenever a true theory appears, it will be its own evidence. Its test is that it will explain all phenomena: Ralph Waldo Emerson -- Since the mathematicians invaded Relativity, I do not understand it myself anymore: Albert Einstein -- I would say that the aether is a medium invented by man for the purpose of propagating his misconceptions from one place to another: W.F.G. Swann: -- Most of the fundamental ideas of science are essentially simple, and may, as a rule, be expressed in a language comprehensible to everyone: Albert Einstein -- Physics is mathematical not because we know so much about the physical world, but because we know so little: Bertrand Russell -- If I could explain it to the average person, I would not have been worth the Nobel Prize: R. P. Feynman -- I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect has intended us to forgo their use: Galileo Galilei -- How dare we speak of the laws of chance? Is not chance the antithesis of all law?: Bertrand Russell -- Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I´m not sure about the former: Albert Einstein -- The glory of mathematics is that you don't have to say what you are talking about: Richard Feynman -- Anything is possible if you don´t know what you are talking about: Author Unknown -- In life, everything is relative - except Einstein´s theory: Leonid S. Sukhorukov -- Don´\'t worry about people stealing your ideas. If your ideas are any good, you´ll have to ram them down people´s throats: Howard Aiken --A day will come undoubtedly when the ether will be discarded as useless: H. Poincaré -- First they tell you you´re wrong and they can prove it; then they tell you you´re right but it isn´t important; then they tell you it´s important but they knew it all along: Charles Kettering -- It is not once nor twice but times without number that the same ideas make their appearance in the world: Aristotle -- The opposite of a true statement is a false statement. The opposite of a profound truth may well be another profound truth: Niels Bohr -- A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it: Max Planck -- Euclid taught me that without assumptions there is no proof. Therefore, in any argument, examine the assumptions: Eric Temple Bell -- Half this game is ninety percent mental: Yogi Berra

Magnus effect; electromagnetic induction; magnetic flux density; Precession of electrons


The lines of magnetic force in the center of a bar magnet are almost parallel. When a circular coil is brought close to this position, the outermost shell electrons of the copper atoms in the coil are presumed to align in the same direction along the magnetic field lines. When I measured the electromotive force by changing the angle of entry of a circular coil into the center of the bar magnet every 15 degrees, I found that the electromotive force was distributed on the graph of sinθ. On the other hand, when I investigated the Magnus effect by sending air to the center of a rotating sphere using a blower at different angles of 15 degrees, I found that the Magnus effect is distributed on the graph of sinθ. I considered whether there is a relationship between these two experimental results. I thought it would be unreasonable to compare macro and micro phenomena, but as I continued to think about it, I realized something interesting. Modern physics does not consider the spin of an electron to be rotation. However, research by Dr. Yoshida's group at the University of Tsukuba, published in Nature Nanotechnology in 2014, discovered that electrons in a magnetic field precess. Precession means that each point of the electron moves in a circular motion. It seems possible that an electromotive force is generated due to the interaction between this circular motion and magnetic flux density.
